Skyservice and Fontainebleau develop new Fort Lauderdale FBO
This venture marks the first co-development project between the two companies as they create Florida's ultimate private aviation gateway for leisure and business travel.
Fontainebleau Aviation is to open a second south Florida private jet center at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International airport.

Skyservice Business Aviation has completed its investment in Fontainebleau Aviation's FBO development project at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International airport in Florida.

"The collaboration between Skyservice and Fontainebleau in developing the new era of FBOs has been remarkable," says Skyservice CEO Benjamin Murray. "Today's clients expect the amenities and conveniences of an FBO to match those of the best hotels, as well as efficiency and safety that exceed any standard or policy. We're pleased to work with the airport and with Broward County to meet these expectations and provide the best of what business aviation has to offer."

The FBO is expected to be complete by early 2025 and will support an 80,000sq ft hangar, a 25,000sq ft opulent lobby and hangar offices, and an executive suite that includes an AV-equipped board room accommodating up to 20 people. The facilities have been expertly engineered to support the largest of business aircraft and Fontainebleau Aviation is now accepting hangar lease agreements.

"We are thrilled to partner with Skyservice to develop a one-of-a-kind luxury FBO grounded in 37 years of aviation thought leadership and award-winning service and safety," says Fontainebleau Development chairman and CEO Jeffrey Soffer. "This is a first in our expanding portfolio of premier destinations and best-in-class luxury experiences to bring to the aviation industry."

Home to five of the top 25 busiest business aviation airports in the US, Florida is one of the most significant markets in the industry. Upon completion, the Fort Lauderdale FBO positions Skyservice at two of the state's busiest business aviation airports: Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International and, through Fontainebleau Aviation's existing FBO, at Miami-Opa locka Executive airport.
